  • To plan the SkullSpace Anti-Social in September of 2016.
  • Leader: A. Michael
  • Members: A. Michael, Thor, Shab, Edwin
  • Status: Tickets and posters printed; license still in process

Concept

The Anti-Social is a geek-themed social, but also a not-social. Music, but not too loud; dancing, but not all the time; alcohol, of course; people dressing in costumes, but only if it's not going to end up weird; raffles full of geeky gifts; food, both generic party snacks and home-cooked treats; video games projected on the walls.

  • Plan out all the events and volunteers right away.
  • Design some decorations, if we can. Worst case, just streamers and some papers.
  • Send out an update to our social media channels the day before, and a few hours before.
  • The day before is the best day for doing prep baking.
  • The day of, we'll arrive early with refreshments, board games, and decorations to get everything set up.

Theme

Can we design everything with pixels and modified 4-bit colour? (For example) Emphasis on cards and boards as design elements (maybe real-life Material Design). Maybe dice. Play up the hacker aesthetic, if we can. Green numbers and stuff. Some hardware hacks with blinkenlights, if possible.
